I just registered yesterday and already I need your help.
My fiance and I want to plan our destination wedding for July 2009 and hope to have aproximately 20 people come along with us. We plan to stay in an AI with our guests BUT we DO NOT want to have our wedding at an AI. It is important to us (mainly me) that our wedding be intimate and private so I am looking for smaller hotels, villas, or private locations for us to have the wedding. I was hoping that you lovely ladies might be able to make some recomendations of places that would fit this description that are relatively close to AI's. We were intially thinking Jamaica and I love the idea of Tensing Pen but I am worried that the AI's in Negril are $$. I would like to stay within the $1500 per person range for my guests. I am also interested in Mexico...
Any suggestions, advice, guidance is much appreciated. I am one very clueless bride right now. I really don't know where to start.

I am actually getting married at a non AI location in Akumal, a small but beautiful town on the Riviera Maya. It's a private venue and really lovely! I am planning on posting all my wedding details later today ~ if you don't see the thread, PM me!!

i stayed at the Gran Bahia Riviera Maya Akumal... I had my wedding there and it actually was quite private... however I understand your concerns. There are a LOT of beautiful places down in the Riviera Maya (such as Tulum or Akumal) that would be beautiful for a private wedding. The Riviera Maya also tends to be cheaper for your guests than the Carribean.
Best of luck and congratulations on your engagement!

Some of the newer all-inclusives in Jamaica are reasonably-priced (in the $100/person/night range as opposed to $200/person/night range) so don't lose hope!
